Question 1 Mensuration Exercise 17.4

Take π = 22/7 unless stated otherwise.

The adjoining figure shows a cuboidal block of wood through which a circular cylindrical hole of the biggest size is drilled. Find the volume of the wood left in the block.

Solution:

The cuboid's volume is the total amount of space it takes up in a three-dimensional environment. A three-dimensional object called a cuboid has six rectangular faces. The cuboid has six faces, each of which is made up of three parallel faces.

Given diameter of the hole, d = 30 cm

radius of the hole, r = d/2 = 30/2 = 15 cm

Height of the cylindrical hole, h = 70 cm

Volume of the cuboidal block = lbh

= 70×30×30

= 63000 cm3

Volume of cylindrical hole = π r2h

= (22/7)×152×70

= 22×225×10

= 49500 cm3

Volume of the wood left in the block = 63000-49500 = 13500 cm3

Hence the volume of the wood left in the block is 13500 cm3.
